What you'll do

Previous knowledge of the language IS NOT NECESSARY!

It is not a typical, strict language lesson. This is an experiential kind of learning, pleasant and full of surprises!
A journey to the city and its history based on the greek language.
In the end we will have a cup of coffee and chat about the experience!

We will follow an interesting route (of about 2 km) in the city, stopping in some main spots. Each of them is referring to the greek language and also is a part of the city story.

Walking in the city you meet the fragments of the past and you capture today’s spirit by communicating in greek. Because language is a basic part of communication helping understand both people and civilization!

It was a wonderful experience that will actually enrich my ongoing stay in Thessaloniki. I can now walk around the streets seeing the layers of history that Maria and Anna unearthed for me. Walking by the Rotunda, I no longer see just new apartments and shops leading to the sea, I see the walls and lines of the old city. Maria and Anna brought their individual passions (including their studies in language and geology!) to the experience and authentically shared their love of their city. I have lived in Greece on and off for a few years now, but I felt like I was seeing a whole new side of Thessaloniki!

Great experience with Thessaloniki locals, learning more about history, language and culture. Well curated material with curious facts about downtown buildings and historical landmarks, including 3D pictures of the original settlement. Really enjoyed the conversation about Byzantine periods and segways into modern day Greek life.

This was truely a great experience. Maria and Anna know a lot about the history of Thessaloniki and shared this knowledge in a very interesting way connecting the old with the new. I learned more about the Greek language and saw corners of the city I wouldn't have seen if it was not with them. They are both very nice and open and I had a great time. I can highly recommend this experience and looking forward to see them again on my next trip to Thessaloniki for a new experience!
